Trivia / Glacier

  • Big Name Fan: "Gentleman" Chris Adams (1955-2001), best known for his work in World Class in the Eighties,said in a 2000 shoot interview that Glacier was one of his favorite guys to work with, putting Glacier in the same list as the Von Erichs, the Fabulous Freebirds and even Ric Flair.
  • Screwed by the Network/What Could Have Been: The first Blood Runs Cold vignette aired on the May 4, 1996 episode of WCW Saturday Night. Scott Hall (not named as such yet) debuted on the May 27, 1996 WCW Monday Nitro. Glacier was originally hyped to debut in July. Hulk Hogan's heel turn at WCW Bash at the Beach, July 7, 1996, and the launch of the NWO put everything else, including Glacier, on the back burner. Glacier debuted in August, making his Nitro debut against Big Bubba of the Dungeon of Doom, who disparaged Glacier in a prematch promo, saying "Karate Man, wax on, wax off!". Because Glacier's debut was delayed, the debuts of his nemeses Mortis, James Vandenberg and Wrath were delayed too, this time, until Uncensored in March of 1997. This meant that he was out there for months with no angle or storyline, and, thus, no reason for the fans to care about him. Glacier's matches, particularly his elaborate and expensive entrance, with lights and fake snow falling, and his tendency to at times miss his finisher, hurt his chances to get over.
